Wipe your hands and whip out the knitting
When we finished our very fine lunch in the park, we wiped our hands and replaced our napkins with knitting. Did you see Cassie's very fine Birch yesterday? We saw it up close and personal, still on the needles -- do you see it through the mess? DH was studying the subway map, intent on his route...
I think these two were taken in the same general area -- the fountain, for sure, is near City Hall. And who'd have guessed there'd be sheep (and other animals) in the middle of the city! Isn't he cute? Thanks for snapping that fountain pic, Lauren! Here's one of Lauren -- walking, talking, and knitting!
This is the hallway at Seaport Yarn -- it's the same hall, shot from either end. There's another small hall with a great collection of books and a little more yarn, and at least three offices filled with yarn -- all amidst the other offices that are mostly not filled with yarn! I was definitely on overload here and that's too bad because they had lots of stuff and darn good prices.
And then, as you've no doubt already read elsewhere, it was off to The Yarn Connection to meet Kathleen! I'd been so sure, and I know Katy was, too, that the only way I'd meet her was if she came to Knitting Camp in Wisconsin. She'd not had the best of days, but she was great company and it was so fun to hang out at the library and knit! Fun with collage (clockwise from top left): Cara, Katy, Ann, me, and Lauren in the center.
Lauren had to run and catch her train, and the rest of us went out for pizza at John's Pizzeria. Yes, I'm one of those who eats pizza with a fork -- usually. Just not so crazy about sticky fingers. But I picked it up and folded it and, mmmmm, it was awfully good pizza. The grrs brought me back to the hotel where we visited with DH for a bit (he was home early!) and threw all the pillows off the bed so there was room for us and a photo op.
Whew. End of Day 1 in NYC. Non-stop fun and excitement, I'll tell ya! Tune in tomorrow for more shops, more yarn, more bloggers!
